. because what occurred in washington was obviously much more powerful than any of the earnings report, any of the revenue reports, anything wall street threw at us. boy did we get serious good quarters in almost every sector last week. and they were still overwhelmed by the negativity. >> dive, dive, dive. >> all right, there's some important lessons here. first, when everyone thinks the world is coming to an end, it tends not to end. we feared the worst, right? we feared the worst. you know what, when we fear that we rarely get the worst. >> house of pleasure. >> but i want to be clear on this. a nixing of ben bernanke would have caused at least a thousand-point decline. he's regarded basically as the only adult in the room. the guy who may have started late to solve the banking crisis but did keep the system working kept your atm on the move. prevented imminent bank nationalization. i think it's safe to say we would be several thousand points lower than we are if not half if he hadn't stopped the move to nationalize the banks. second, this is the real travesty. until last week america th
majority is broken. we're closer to the state known as gridlock that takes washington out of the investment equation. a brown victory could spell the end of health care reform. but that's only just the beginning. this is about more than health care. as you can see from the fact that the whole market is rallying, not just health care stocks. the truth is -- let's cut to the truth. all right? not a lot of talk about the truth. let's give you some truth here. the market doesn't like the agenda president obama and the current democrat regime. they see it at pro labor making it easier to unionize against the banks and walmart. whatever your feelings on organized labor the interest of unions are opposed to those of the shareholders, you. that's why pundits say to look for the union label and sell. we don't invest in shares the aflcio or mime workers. we invest when unions are weak? don't like it? take your profits from the scott brown, slash, obama repudiation ral land donate to the pension fund for all i care. how about the iww? obama's agenda a favors stopping pollution over jump starting the e
of lending in the normal course of business. i say, argh! remember my mantra. if washington helps stocks go up, i'm on board. but if washington kills one of the rolling bull markets and the one we had in banks was pretty rolling, we're going to get mr. t's forecast, shylock's plea in the merchant of wall street and super bear is going to cause us to get hammered. but let's not -- but let's not become too crazy here. this market needed a breather. it needed an excuse. and washington provided a terrific pretext. because obviously the banks weren't the only losers today. all that red hot material stock smoking. sizzling, as i like to say it. the coppers, the steels, the mighty equipment players. they all got crushed! in part because of fears about china. the source of most of the demand for the stuff. people think it might cool off. now, adding a reasonable pullback in oil, a decline in the smoking agricultural sector courtesy of a big selloff of corn, and the jackhammering all makes sense. i'm bringing out every big gun tonight. nevertheless, to quote those buffett like sages, the spice girls
, cramer, i want to give you a big dirty oil and coal covered when is washington going to wake up and smell the natural gas boo-yah. >> ain't never going to happen. i understand representative markey is speaking about putting a new tax on oils. it doesn't get better than this. how can i help there, texan? >>. >> caller: i want to ask you about the deal with apple and the takeover. >> all right. now erts, we know it's got a lot of cash. we like erts, that's what the street calls electronic arts. we like it because of play fish, we like it because it's social media. we think that the future of social media. that's why it barely got hit. stay long erts. i never recommend a stock on a takeover basis when the fundamentals rntd so hot. i think the fund mentals are improving. i'm recommending it on social media. okay. i always wanted to play hamlet ever since i was cut from every single play by mrs. duz duzenberry -- never mind. to buy or not to buy? that is the question. i think apple is red hot. maybe even red delicious, and you should buy, buy, buy. "mad money" will be back after the break. >>>
stocks? let's use some comparisons. jim zorn -- >> boo! >> the at last defrocked washington redskins coach, would be morningstar's portfolio manager of the year! ba-bump. and the rams would be a widely acclaimed five star fund. as your coach and using the sports, not money accountability standard, where the s.e.c. means the stringent tough s.e.c. on cbs rather than lightweight madoff fool in washington, it's my job to help you find the themes, the broad areas that are going to dominate 2010. even, frankly, if they're not interesting, or even particularly pleasant, even if they're like colonoscopies or getting a root canal. by the way, what's the dam for in the root canal except to torture you? how come you have to drink five gallons of liquid draino before they stick a camera in you? we're talking about international investing or as i like to think about it immunizing the portfolio from the second most powerful person in the country, nancy pelosi and her dictatorship from the parole tearate in washington. i've preached your portfolio needs international diversification. but this year
with the washington gravy train and eventually washington will come back to reachlt think the voters of massachusetts made that very clear. >> so you do believe somebody in washington heard what the voters did. >> and i think unfortunately you need a message lie massachusetts to get it across, and i believe it's going to have to happen two or three times. we're in worse shape here in california. our california government has got some horrible policies for businesses. companies are leaving the state. and we have 12.4% unemployment. our governments need to reform. >> thank you for speaking out. everyone else is afraid to. dr. rodgers, thank you for coming on the phone. >> dr. roj jers, look, hid record speaks for itself. i tell you i've never seen this company's good shape and i followed it since he invepted it. keep this one in mind when the mutual funds are finally done selling because this is one you want to stay with. and stay with cramer. >> coming up, jim goes high volt taj into the fast-fire lightning round. and later whether the dow hits the floor, jim tries to help you stay on ground with am i
emissions and oil, 40% cleaner than coal and could create a huge number of jobs especially if washington throws its weight behind the fuel. chesapeake announced a deal to bring natural gas into the jersey area next week. i like that. there's a recognition that the congress that blocks natural gas will be portrayed in the november elections as an enemy of job creation, an enemy of energy independence, and an enemy of cleaner air. if the democrats don't become a whole lot more friendly toward natural gas, you can bet the republicans will seize on this issue and grab a whole lot more seats in the midterm elections, which i think will happen anyway and will be a huge positive for this group that i am making one of my big themes in 2010. you think exxon's stupid? you don't get that smart to be stupid. total isn't dumb either. we want to invest like them, to embrace this theme. in stocks like -- you ready? -- chesapeake, still hasn't really done anything. devon, that's larry nichols. continental resources, already making a lot of money, anadarko, whose ceo will tell us about the theme later on
some rigor. maybe this is a memo to washington. making matters worse, it's the bonuses at goldman sachs that are grabbing all the attention in the headlines. we will be punishing a lot of banks that loan to small businesses in order to get back at goldman. which, by the way, doesn't even do that kind of lending in the normal course of business. i say, argh! remember my mantra. if washington helps stocks go up, i'm on board. but if washington kills one of the rolling bull markets and the one we had in banks was pretty rolling, we're going to get mr. t's forecast, shylock's plea in "the merchant of wall street," and super bear is going to cause us to get hammered. but let's not -- but let's not become too crazy here. this market needed a breather. it needed an excuse. and washington provided a terrific pretext. because obviously the banks weren't the only losers today. all that red hot material stock smoking. sizzling, as i like to say it. which is kind of like steak 'ems. the coppers, the steels, the mighty equipment players. they all got crushed! in part because of fears about china. th
by this litany, that these numbers will be dynamite, like acme dynamite. you know what? washington's in no mood for great earnings from these clowns so there is no incentives for these banks to blow out the numbers. they won't want to tell a good story. all that will do is make higher taxes for them. would you tell a good story and then get taxed? no. tell a bad story and avoid the tax. these companies know what's god f good for them. i suspect we'll see a subdued group and subdued reaction. bankers don't favor being drawn in quarters. they don't seem to like being dangled from meat hooks. i don't feel that way about tech. i think intel actually had a supercall fragilistic ex-peaalldocious quarter. they had a i love you, you love me quarter. i think when we see from ibm on tuesday, that's always an easy one, ibm on tuesday. stx and sky works. that's david aldrich. maybe we'll give him a sijingle. thursday, amd, one of our favorite specks. i think we're going to huge numbers from all of these and hear a terrific story about what? of course the mobile internet tsunami. i expect by the time we get
washington, i think you should take a look at cogent communications, ccoi, the ultralow cost high speed internet provider. after the break, i'll try to save you more money. >>> coming up, which health care plates are ready for the e.r.? dr. cramer examines the sector for the stocks in need of urgent care on an all new sell block. >>> trying to stay on steady ground with "am i diversified?" all coming up on "mad money." >>g that we thought health care reform could fail. even as almost everyone else feared it would turn for-profit companies into nonprofits. we never thought the democrats would be able to get anything but a watered down bill through congress, one that wouldn't do much damage to health care stocks that everyone was fleeing from. then we learned scott brown won and obama might not have the votes to pass anything. since everyone was focusing on the news rather than on civics 101 and vote counting in the senate, which made serious profit annihilaing health care legislation all but an impossibility, we became pro everything health care, including companies we didn't particularl
it in washington, and i'm certainly hoping tonight that we'll hear good things and then we'll see not just a talk, but we'll see the walk in the coming months and there's a lot of work to be done because the real unemployment rate is over 18% in this country in terms of people who are either not looking forward because they've given up or because they're working part-time, added to the regular unemployment numbers and we need to wake up to that fact. as an engineer, i've told you before, unless we identify the problem correctly, we'll never come up with the right solution and so far, we haven't been identified, but now you're right, it's coming from everywhere and it's coming hard and fast and the american people are speaking loud and clear. >> all right, dan. one of the things that i talked to some of my people on the right side. the right wingers as i would call them, historically and what they say to me is, jim, you're a cry baby. you've joined a legion of cry babies who now feel the government has to create jobs and you don't believe in the private sector. dan, am i a cry baby from your view?
daddy? it's the "lightning round" on "mad money." chris in washington. >> caller: hey, booyah from redland, washington. >> booyah to you. >> caller: jim, it's raining software out here in redmond. i want to know is it a good time to buy at 30 or wait until it goes to 25? what's going on here? >> mr. salty? microsoft? we want to buy microsoft. they're having a smoking good quarter. we got that window 7 much better than people think. got it it in stride. feels like a $35 stock to me. i say pull the trigger. it would be a gift, it would be a gift, mr. redmond, if that stock were to come down from here. i want to steve in ohio. steve-a-rio. >> caller: hey, steve from colu. i wanted to give you a big rose bowl ohio state champion boo, boo, boo ya. >> you know what, i'll take that. i thought stayed -- i thought the buckeyes looked fabulous. hit me! >> caller: yes, they do. i've been doing my home work like you tell everybody to do and i put my home work into the home improvement sector and found lowe's, low has a lot of upside in that six to eight months. >> i'm nothing go to disagree wi
. sell, sell, sell. sometimes you have to cut your losses. let's go to tim in washington, the state. tim. >> caller: boo-yah. thanks for taking my call. >> my pleasure. how are you doing? >> caller: good. a couple quick questions about national beverage, fizz. fizz is getting ready to pay a special dividend payment of $1.35 a share. based on the current price that's almost 10% of the stock's value in one payment. we all like high dividend yielders. but this supposed to be a one-time payment. so my questions for you are can we anticipate more of these payments from fizz in the future? is this payment a sign of strength for the company moving forward in 2010? >> you know, first of all, beginning of the show, also the -- people, you know, i always say the same thing. people who have been to the set in our big shows know that i don't the questions beforehand. i will tell you i do not know national beverage. do i not know fizz. i don't know about the special dit dividend. i don't know the answer. it is better not to. you know what. i will get it next time. i will do the work. all right. domin

"mad money" is back after break. >>> i like to say there's always a bull market somewhere. i promise to try to find it just for you right here on "mad money." i'm jim cramer and i'll see you tomorrow.

in washington as we business people think. >> we've got the hundred dollars bet. >> i see you go back to the hundred dollar bet, i understand. >> it's going to be done. i really truly believe it will be done. >> now, one of the things that i hear about -- and i'd love you to be able to refute it. people feel because of some of the causes that you have backed, the democrats in congress may be not aligned with you because of political causes, maybe because of your backing of the swift boat campaign during a previous election. >> i don't even remember that. at my age -- >> some of those people down there are like elephants. >> at my age, your memory is not too good anymore. all i remember is the energy, what we have to do for america. and i think the democrats are on board. >> all right. what do you think about the idea that the natural gas lobbyists have been very slow? we've had mr. hackett on from anadarko and mr. mcclendon on from chesapeake and they admit they thought this was such an easy cause they didn't have to put money behind it. why was the industry itself so unable to get it
of federal government, military installations, washington, d.c. suburbs, and a strong state government here in richmond. so we've within able to weather the storm a little bit better than many of our colleagues in the industry. >> you're a forerunner to the area we've been talking about a lot on the show, the marcellus shale. it is the saudi arabia of pennsylvania and northern tier new york. you sold some acreage. am i thinking the values have peaked? because you're a pretty shrewd judge of what you should be buying and what you should be selling. >> well, i hope we are. but we farmed out 100,000 acres last year. we have another 450,000 plus acres that we have under lease right now. we're looking at monetizing that acreage because the way to get at that shale play is a horizontal drilling method that we are not expert at. so we think it's probably better for our shareholders to let others come in, pay us for the heights to drill that who know what they're doing and we'll use that fund -- those funds to build the gas infrastructure, the gathering system, pipeline systems that we are expert a
, but by sales. defensive stocks that generate tons of cash and are mostly immune to washington, thanks heavens. these stocks should have been up, not down today. you're getting some real good entry points. you want to invest in a bank, go with those that do none of the things the president wants to crack down on. i think they're all up today. those are the future banks as i describe in "getting back to even." getting back to even, hmm. you will have to do it a second time if obama gets his plan through congress. these banks aren't hedge fund in drag. they don't do private equity and they don't risk their capital on crazy things, okay, fine. where else can you put your money? domestic security, energy shortage, foreign stocks. do you remember that theme? hey. i got horse sense. as well as the mobile internet tsunami. the long-term themes we laid out because we feared those things. many of those stocks work today, relatively speaking. that's it. we recognize that the populist movement favors the stocks that go into bull mode with an economic slowdown because there is no doubt in anyone's mind fr

to worry if it's played out by more assistance from washington. i don't know if it's enough to simply focus on the company electronic records or if the net has to be larger when it comes to health care information technology and its ability to benefit from the stimulus. and from watered-down health care reform, even if we just get latter. that's why i'm happy to have glen tullman, the ceo of mdrx on the show tonight, to help us figure things out. mr. tullman, welcome back to "mad money." >> thank you very much. happy to be with you. >> you're in a difficult situation, sir, if i might say, because you on your conference call indicate the 2010, not fiscal but actual calendar year, is when the big numbers occur. but you were being judged by a quarter where the stimulus didn't really kick in. can you describe why the best may still be ahead in terms of what the federal government is doing? >> sure. we think this is the year of the electronic health record. sales were up actually 30% year over year. 16% quarter over quarter. we think the stimulus hasn't yet hit but we're already seeing great tak
